    Why would you spend $700 for a plant on e-bay that you could get from a reputable grower for a lot less?

    Because the plant you get on ebay is grown with care, for a few years in a personal collection. While the reputable growers online import all the plants from the same source and you get one the size of a dime which has flown around the globe for the past 2 - 3 weeks, and will take a year to recover.

    That sounds more like a description of retailer than grower. If that was the reputation of Nepenthes growers in the US then I can see why people would be hesitant to buy from them.

    wow! it almost seems as if a person can make a living off growing multiple plants to medium size such as this and then selling them off on ebay. Surely some ppl truly need to realize how much things are actually worth. I agree that its a beautiful specimen, but no way is it worth that much.
